iPhone 8 Wild Rumor May Have Buyers Enjoy Wireless Charging, VR/AR Features
An iPhone 8 rumor is currently circulating the internet about a wireless feature that is making buyers even more excited for the release of this much-talked Apple phone. The Israeli blog The Verifier claims that the soon to be launched smartphone will feature a special Smart Connector for inductive "wireless" charging. The blog also claims that there could be VR/AR accessories and advanced 3D cameras.
It's worthy to note that Apple currently only uses the Smart Connector on the iPad Pro line. However, this isn’t the first time the wireless charger has been rumored for an upcoming iPhone. Last year, leaks about the iPhone 7 had the Smart Connector feature on its back, but it proved to be an iPad-only connection.
According to 9to5 Mac, while it's a worthy feature if ever Apple's iPhone 8 will indeed come out with the wireless charging, it could be disappointing if it is in the same style as the Apple Watch. Still, the rumor is plausible as inductive wireless charging can already be used to power the iPad Pro using the Smart Connector. The Verifier also claims that the Smart Connector might also be used for augmented/virtual reality accessories in some way too.
According to BGR, it’s no secret that Tim Cook is especially excited about the potential for augmented reality to be applied in the smartphone. The Smart Connector is also rumored to be used to power the VR/AR features. This doesn't come as a surprise since there had been reports of Apple working on a pair of VR glasses that may see the light of day in the next year or two.
Additionally, the rumors include advanced 3D cameras in the iPhone 8. This surfaced as Apple had been said to be developing augmented reality glasses designed to serve as the foundation for new augmented reality features. At this point, the safest point is that the next iPhone will actually include wireless charging functionality after being corroborated by a number of credible sources over the past few months.
